An image of West Wittering beach at sunset
On the manhood peninsula, near the mouth of Chichester Harbour, the twin villages of East and West Wittering are home to stretches of unspoilt coastline. The golden sandy beach of West Wittering is a summertime hot spot, hugely popular with day trippers and holiday makers keen to enjoy the wide sands and shallow waters.

East Wittering, with its thriving community and vibrant selection of independent shops and cafes, boasts a sand and shingle beach which neighbours Bracklesham Bay on its Eastern Edge.

Both beaches are a year-round mecca for thrill seekers, with a host of watersports experiences on offer, as well as tuition and equipment hire. During cooler months, when dogs are welcome in all areas, the quieter beaches are the perfect location for wintry walks, with plenty of places to warm up afterwards.
